I'm still using suction cups near the top rear to act as legs as the front rests on the edge of the tank. Just got married last week so I been insane busy and hadn't done any other than feed and top off for a while.

The moss wall i think ia java Xmas moss mix in the last picture you can see what i think is java at the top. At the bottom right corner you can see what I think is Xmas that makes up the rest.

Sorry for the lack of any updates, between getting married an moving to new house i have been busy

this thank was surprisingly easy to move, lowered water took out equipment road in the front seat of my car.

topped it off with distilled upon setup and added a splash of the minerals that come with the kit.

as for maintenance i do nothing but feed scrape front glass (side left green for the babies) and top off with distilled water. the shrimp and my light cycle seems to keep any algae of concern away to keep this tank glorious

cell phone is my only working cam at the moment

Hello,

I've enjoyed reading your journal. I am thinking of getting a EBI as well and I was wondering if you clean the gravel as well and if yes how messy it is and if its hard?
Ive had tanks in the past but they were alot bigger so cleaning the gravel was not much of an issue but with this small tank Im wondering if it can be done without disturbing everything?

i've heard cleaning (like vacuuming) the fluval stratum isn't a good idea as it removes potential meals for the shrimp, who love to walk around, picking at particles and biofilm accumulated here and there.

my question for Big, the OP, is: how did you mod the filter intake so shrimplets were sucked in? thanks!
